Today we review Eat Less by Jeremy and Georgina Jackson-Sytner
💫Back of the Book
It doesn’t read like a diet book or look like a diet book. Eat Less is an anti-obesity manifesto.
Eat Less is stuffed with bite-sized nuggets of information on the benefits of eating less, advice on what to eat less of, and much more.
Informative and motivational, the underlying message is very serious, but the manner in which it delivers those messages is never preachy and easily digestible. Eat Less offers practical advice on the life-changing benefits that simply eating less food can bring. Eat Less really works.
The authors are living proof that the habit-changing lifestyle they set out could help millions of people easily get to a healthy weight and maintain it for life.

💫Review by Kimberly Livingston
One of the mantras that I lived by for many years came from Julia Robert’s character of Anna Scott in the movie Notting Hill where she must prove that she is the most deserving of the last brownie. She states, “I’ve been on a diet every day since I was nineteen, which basically means I’ve been hungry for a decade.”
Eat Less by Jeremy and Georgina Jackson-Sytner reminds me of that line. The Jackson-Sytner’s emphasize that diets don’t work, lifestyle changes do. Like Anna Scott, they remind us that being hungry is okay, it means we are losing weight and/or keeping it off. Having lost thirty pounds in my early thirties and keeping a healthy BMI and weight for two decades, I have quite a bit of experience with the topic, so when offered the opportunity to read and review the book, I sank my teeth into the opportunity.
Eat Less is filled with these kinds of food puns and morsels of suggestions that the Jackson-Sytner’s have incorporated into their daily lives. A very quick read, some of the ideas in the book are solid. For example, the sizes of our dishes in the present day compared to the past and the fact that we are an increasingly overweight world. At 125 pages, the reader gets a taste of what this lifestyle might include.
Eat Less is one couple’s formula for losing weight and keeping it off permanently. A number of points in the book are absolutely doable and would make a big impact on overall weight maintenance. Common sense or not, sometimes reading someone else’s success is motivation enough to give it a go. Their emphasis on Eat Well Eat Less, along with some other sage tips, may be just what you need to start in the right direction to a new lifestyle and a smaller waistline.
